The 3 Source Steps Matting Sequence

Are your entrance mats getting dirty too quickly? If so, you’re probably expecting too much of the old classic dust control mat AKA ‘entrance mat’.

The solution is to remove as much of the dirt and water before feet reach the mats that are really designed for internal use.

Step 1 – The Scraper Mat

Removes heavy dirt such as mud, grit, sand and snow before it enter the building. A mat placed outdoors will need to be able to cope with all types of weather, hence this all rubber mat. It’s quick and easy to clean with a hose.

Step 2 – The Waterhog Mat 

This is the most important mat in the system because it has the most work to do. The bi-level Waterhog removes heavy and light soil as well as moisture, containing it and preventing tracking and spilling onto surrounding floors.

Construction of Classic, Diamond and Premium Mats

How?

A) Bi-level construction

B) Crushproof rubber nubs

C) 100% polypropylene pile

D) Textured rubber backing

E) Retains up to 6.5 litres of water per sq metre

Step 3  – The Finishing Mat

This mat removes and light dirt, dust and moisture. Our twisted nylon TriGrip mats are most effective for soaking up moisture and filtering dirt away from the surface. If you are going for a logo mat then this is the step in which to position it. Any earlier in the sequence and it will be dirty too quickly.

If you only had one mat, what would we advise?

Step 2. All day long. Brilliant technology as you can see here from my video below and is a great all round.

This mat is available in a wide range of sizes and colours, on a roll and as carpet tiles.

Which backing do you need?

Flat backed mats are ideal for hard floors so that the contact area is maximised.

Gripper backed mats are ideal for carpets so they can grip onto the carpet. Simple!
